There are many different types of warehouses. These can include transportation and freight company warehousing for short-term storage, industrial warehouses at distribution hubs or even in-house warehousing of parts and equipment in production, manufacturing and fabrication companies.
Typically, most warehouses are built with a concrete floor. This is a cost-effective, easy to work with material that provides a level, even floor and provides more durability than other flooring options.
However, unless an industrial-grade epoxy concrete sealer is used, a warehouse floor can begin to deteriorate rapidly. The use of equipment, spills, moisture, corrosive materials and even items being dropped will all start to wear away at the surface.
Protecting Your Floors
Concrete, unless coated, is a soft and easily damaged surface. By applying an epoxy concrete sealer as soon as the concrete has cured, it is possible, to not only add a great looking floor for a low price but to actually protect the concrete from wear and tear.
The use of the epoxy concrete sealer prevents the porous concrete from absorbing any moisture or spills. This, in turn, prevents any damage to the surface, even from corrosive types of chemicals.
Some of the best industrial types of concrete sealers can even be applied to flooring that may have some chips, cracks, and areas of minor surface irregularities. This type of floor coating and sealant is thicker and, when applied to the specified types of damaged concrete surfaces, it will flow into the damaged areas and create a level finished floor surface.
This is typically used on older concrete floors in warehouses. The benefit of this option is there is minimal floor prep time required. The entire project can be finished in hours, meaning limited downtime for any warehouse facility.
